Taking a left from Nicolette onto 42nd, I spot a tight pair of baby blue Dunks on a young buck at the corner. He had just climbed his way up the hill on a bicycle and was breathing hard. I feel his pain. I do that hill all the time. It's way hot for what seems like the millionth day in a row. The humidity has dipped some though and it feels nice. I hang my head out the window and point at his feet. "Hey man, nice kicks." He gives me a curt nod as he replies. "What up?" Summertime, that's what's up.
The new Atmosphere e.p., Sad Clown, Bad Summer is d to the ope. Five tracks just for the sunshine season. If you're a fan of Slug's personal storytelling slash trip down memory lane type songs, you won't be dissapointed. With only one official month of summer left, I'm gonna drive this thing into the ground. I've been listening to it non-stop since I picked it up on Tuesday at Paid Dues. So far it' s been the perfect soundtrack to August.
